Looking to play around a bit with the new PaaS app platform.

I don’t see any concept of a “release phase” (see heroku) where one would typically trigger things like database migrations, and cancel the new code being released if it fails.

I could include in the run command (migrate + run) but it’s not clear from the docs how that would behave if multiple containers tried to execute it at the same time, or what would happen if it fails.

What is the recommended approach for doing database migrations like this?

Great question, we do not currently have a similar feature but, one is being worked on (I’m working on it) which will allow for pre and post deploy jobs to run before or after an app is deployed.

At this time, combining the migrate and startup of your app as you mentioned is the best option.

Stay tuned for the jobs feature release.
